SIDS/Vaccine Correlation?

I know this is such a difficult topic. I am planning on having a child soon, and my husband and I frequently talk about our worries, plans (co sleeping, vaccinations, etc.).

I found this article and thought it was completely shocking, and I would like to hear other's thoughts on the matter.

The article is called "Death By Lethal Vaccine Injection" and is a mother's story about the loss of her own daughter, followed by commentary by a doctor who, at the time, was 8 months pregnant, who went to a morgue with a fellow researcher and went through piles and piles of infant autopsy reports from children who had died of SIDS, and the connection between the deaths and vaccinations.

My husband is not ready yet to decide against vaccinations, but this article is enough to convince me.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Re: SIDS/Vaccine Correlation?

Of course in the end you are the one who is going to have to make the final decision, but you will hear many, many theories on the causes of SIDS and when it comes right down to it, no one knows what causes it. I have heard the therory on vaccines too, but look at all the healthy babies and adults as well who have had them. I have heard that sleeping on the back helps to prevent it, but look at how many back sleepers have died and how many tummy sleepers are thriving. I have also heard that protecting a crib mattess with a special covering will prevent it, but look how many of us and our babies slept on uncovered mattesses and are fine. The main thing to keep in mind is that no matter what you do or don't do, SIDS is extremely rare. Not even close to 1% of babies die of SIDS. The chances that your baby will be killed or injured in an auto accident by the age of five is much greater than the chances of him or her dying of SIDS. Do whatever you feel is best after your baby is born and make up your mind to just love and enjoy him. Infancy and childhood pass by so quickly and its a shame to spend most of it in fear.
